Differentiated Instruction for Unique Learners
Equals PreK includes differentiated instructional strategies for students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities and students at-risk which allow all students to be active math learners. Differentiation is provided in two ways: by using leveled instruction (Levels 1, 2, and 3) and print materials embedded in the curriculum pedagogy as well as a custom-built PreK Action Dictionary.

Leveled materials provide support for students.
Level 1 - Heavy Cognitive Support
Each concept is highlighted and presented separately for support in choosing the big or little boat.

The leveled materials are part of every lesson and are chosen at the discretion of the teacher. The use of these materials is flexible so teachers can decide to adjust the level as it suits the learner.

Equals PreK is organized by monthly lesson plans. The monthly themes are based on the calendar, seasons, and familiar holidays. Each month contains the same order of lessons and lesson components from September through April. May is a review and assessment month.

The activities in the lessons are focused and systematically organized in a progression of learning, followed by challenge stations at three levels with the flexibility to support years of instruction based on a 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-day program. Cross-curricular connections include music, art, literacy, play, and movement.

Action Dictionary
The Equals PreK Action Dictionary supports students in another way. When a student cannot perform an action in a lesson in a typical way, the Equals PreK Action Dictionary provides a variety of adaptations for student actions including low and mid-tech solutions for students’ individual needs to support language, cognition, motor, and attending skills. Solutions include those typical for young learners, utilizing materials from the kit. The teacher chooses an adaptation as-is or tweaks it to fit the needs of an individual student.

Integrated into the natural environment, the assessment is based on observations as students work and play. Play center test items and materials at three levels included when teachers need to assess what was missed during observation.

Members Only
Equals PreK includes a curricular kit (lessons & printed materials), a manipulative kit, and a Members Only Website (additional lesson materials, bonus materials for enhancement and enrichment, teacher resources). Members Only is also utilized to provide easy access to updates made to Equals PreK.
